We are registered with Sheffield City Council to offer the government’s three funded early learning entitlement schemes, available to parents with children aged 2, 3 and 4.
The schemes provides up to 15 or 30 hours per week of free childcare for children aged 2, 3 or 4 years old (subject to eligibility criteria) until they reach compulsory school age.
15 hour - two year offer
15 hours free childcare for eligible 2-year-olds the term after their 2nd birthday (available for families in receipt of low-income benefits).
15 hour - universal offer
Every 3-year-olds the term after their 3rd birthday and up to school aged in England are entitled to 570 hours of funded early education or childcare per year, regardless of family status. This is usually taken as 15 hours each week for 38 weeks of the year.
